Leaded Bevel Glass Valence

leaded bevel glass valence

 

29″ Leaded Bevel Glass Valence

$195

I created the bevel glass valence from stained glass to diffuse the light as it shines through the upper window.

The valence measures 29″ in length and 8″ in width. To make the valence I used

  • five (5) 4 inches X 4 inches square cut bevels,
  • five (5) 1 inch by 5″ rectangular bevels and
  • seven (7) smaller 2 inches by 2 inches bevels to complete the creation.

To add texture and diffusion I chose a hammered clear textured glass. The variety of bevel glass squares combined with the hammered clear texture creates an eye catching piece that can be used in multiple areas.

Multiple Uses for Bevel Glass Valence

Originally, I thought of using this bevel glass valence as a complement to a smaller window, such as one in a bathroom or as a focal point over any narrow window. Once I saw the light beaming through the finished piece I realized that this leaded bevel glass valence will work beautifully over a bar of lights over a vanity in the bathroom.

Custom Design for Your Valence

I designed and created the leaded bevel glass valence shown as an example of the many uses of stained glass. I will custom design a valence to fit your color selections and size.

Please call or email to discuss colors, size, design, and pricing on custom orders.

Valentine Candle Holders in Two Sizes

I created these red heart Valentine candle holders as special gifts for Valentine’s Day. My goal is to create something special that will last. This year I created an affordable gift that can be used year round. Add these Valentine candle holders to the dining table for a romantic dinner. Draw a hot bubble bath and surround the tub with candles in these Valentine candle holders. Or, add a warm glow to the bedroom.

Don’t fall into the same old gift box. Purchase your special Valentine a gift that will last year after year, reminding him or her of you time and time again. Anyone can purchase a box of chocolates or a bouquet of flowers, both good gifts, but show him or her that you put some thought into the gift this year by selecting my specially designed and crafted Valentine candle holders. There is nothing that shows love more than a gift made by hand and carefully selected.

They come with a white glass candle votive. The red glass is English Muffle Selenium Red. The background glass is a texture clear that added sparkle to a flickering candle.

If you are looking for romance on the most romantic day of the year, select one, two, or several of these holders, add candles, and the rest is up to you.

Art Nouveau Style Stained Glass Iris Window

Art Nouveau Style Stained Glass

This custom order for a bathroom window seemed to ideally capture the Art Nouveau Style stained glass design. I created the design to accentuate flowing lines. I enjoythe Art Nouveau style and particularly enjoy incorporating the style into my custom designs.

The window measures 30.5 inches by 29 inches.

The texture of the background opaque glass itself complements the flow of the lines of the blue-green iris and it provides light without invading privacy. As noted, the background glass also has the flowing lines and is called “everglade”. I always work to select not only the colors that fit the design but a texture that is appropriate.

I used Youghiogheny pale green Stipple glass to create the flowing leaves. For the iris blooms I used blue-green spectrum glass. In keeping with the Art Nouveau style the leaves wander around the interior of the window. I created the flowing leaves to provide balance in design.

I used 3/16 inch lead came for the window and a 1/2 inch zinc to provide additional strength as the window will hang over an existing exterior window.

Working with people on custom projects is one of the great joys of my work. Most of the time I am given an idea of the theme and style and I then incorporate the clients preferences and home decor style into the final design.
